Weighing in at a mere 14 ounces, this speaker packs a punch with its 1.5-inch driver, two passive bass radiators, and a 10-watt RMS amplifier.

The Klipsch Austin promises up to 12 hours of playtime on a single charge, reaching a maximum output of 85 dB and a frequency response down to 70 Hz (±3 dB).
Klipsch Nashville: A Wider Soundstage
Stepping up in size, the Klipsch Nashville, priced at $149, boasts a wider and squatter design, measuring 3.1 x 7 x 3.2 inches. With twin 2.25-inch drivers and dual passive radiators, this speaker delivers a 360-degree sound experience, immersing you in the rich musical heritage of Music City USA. It doubles the power output to 20 watts RMS and offers a remarkable 24 hours of battery life on a single charge. The Klipsch Nashville also includes a feature to charge your other devices via a USB-C cable.
Klipsch Detroit: The Party King
The Klipsch Detroit, the largest and loudest of the trio, is tailored for those who want to groove to the beats of Motown. With a two-way stereo driver configuration, including a pair of 1-inch tweeters, two 3-inch drivers, and "quad force cancelling passive radiators," this speaker offers a premium audio experience. While detailed specs are not yet available, it's clear that Klipsch has prioritized power and performance. Housed in a robust 13-inch wide, 4-inch tall, and 5-inch deep ported enclosure, it promises up to 24 hours of continuous playtime on a single charge.
One notable feature shared by all Music City Series speakers is their IP67 rating, making them dust-tight and waterproof. These speakers can even withstand submersion in more than 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes, ensuring their resilience in various environments.
